We use to love Cold Spot and frequent it. This last time we went it took longer than usual and the food wasn’t as good. The wings were not as crispy as we like. Hope it was just an off day.

This is a sports bar and that is the atmosphere. Lots of TVs with variety of sports shows. We ordered a couple of sandwiches (bean burger and greek flatbread). The sandwiches were very good.....unfortunately, no chips with our pickle. For the price ($7. each) a...More

Stopped in a few times on weekends while in the area hiking or fishing. Like the atmosphere...relaxing and clean. Staff is friendly (though should probably spend less time outside on the deck smoking.) Good bar food. My only complaint is being charged $1 extra for...More

It's been many years since I've visited here since I've relocated out of state. New building due to previous fire. Seems to have same menu for the most part. Tried several craft beers, which were very good. Food was good. Would visit again.

Went for lunch with 5 others. Very quick service. I got a cheeseburger and onion rings and both were excellent. Others got wings (which appears to be their specialty) and wraps. Everyone was very satisfied with their food. All lunch meals included a drink and...More

This is one of my favorite restaurants, I have probably been here over 100 times in the last several years. I like the wings, the price is reasonable, and I like the local atmosphere. All in all, the food is not bad. I will come...More

must have a new menu or cook. Burgers now are like hockey puck on a bun. Please bring back the famous Cold Spot burgers! Still the best wings and a great beer selection but this leaves a bad taste, pun intended.

Best wings in Charleston, great Greek salad, and a huge amount of craft beer / beers to choose from. Well worth it!
